Learning to sew: Waist stay. Check. Hem. Check. Joy. Check.

My watercolor floral dress is finished! Need I say that I am so excited? Of course I needn't. Because you know that I am all aglow.

I used Tasia's excellent tutorial to insert my waist stay. Mine does not look as neat, alas.

But I am ever so pleased with my hem. I did it by hand. What do you think?

Several readers wanted to know where I got my fabric. Well. I am delighted to share that info: Richard Brooks in Dallas. A fabulous fabric store. I got this piece many years ago. (Don't make me count!)
